Amelias Young Highlander Awards


Amelia's Young Highlander Awards 2022 Nominations

This will be the third annual Young Highlander Awards, and the first awards since lockdown in 2020! It's great to be back raising money for the NHS Play Specialists and Drummond School, and also to recognise the astonishing bravery and determination from the young people of the Highlands. This also wouldn't be possible without the unwavering generosity of our sponsors and of course, you the local people of the Highlands who donate to our cause.
